Gov. Mitt Romney

The Obama campaign has been getting hits from both sides of the ideological aisle over negative ads and other attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record. But it’s not stopping there. The president and his surrogates also have their sights set on Romney’s tenure as governor of Massachusetts, which the Republican rarely mentions. “He is not going out there touting his experience in Massachusetts,” Obama said on Monday. Campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt also noted this week that “job creation in Massachusetts slipped from 36th to 47th” when Romney was head of state and “manufacturing jobs declined by twice the national average.”
